The following is from the official press release we got from the WB. Bandai will be making figures not only based on the new show..but the old one as well!

ThunderCats is set to roar back into the mainstream, with a new animated television series, produced by Warner Bros. Animation for Cartoon Network.  WBCP recently announced a powerhouse partnership with Bandai America Incorporated, as the global master toy licensee for ThunderCats.  Under the new agreement, Bandai and their international affiliates will create and distribute products worldwide that will complement both the classic brand property, as well as the fresh take on the animated series, with new television episodes set to air in 2011.     

The new ThunderCats, a 21st century reimagining of the series, will appeal to viewers who have loved the characters all their lives as well as young newcomers to the franchise.  A sweeping tale combining swords and science and boasting ferocious battles with the highest of stakes, the grand origin story of Prince Lion-O’s ascension to the throne – and of those who would thwart his destiny at any cost – takes on epic dimensions in this sharp new telling.  As the forces of good and evil battle each other in the quest for the fabled Stones of Power, Lion-O and his champions learn valuable lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality in every episode.  The series marks a creative collaboration between Warner Bros. Animation and Studio4°C, one of the most vibrant animation studios in Japan.   

Since its debut in 1985, the ThunderCats pop culture phenomenon has had its paws sunk deeply not only in television, but also toylines, apparel and comic books.  Twenty-five years later, through the Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Bandai America collaboration, the beloved brand is poised to make a new audience of kids feel the magic and hear the roar once again.
